Bailey has not left my side since I came home from the vets yesterday. She normally sleeps in the lounge but even moved her "floppy" (her comfort toy) next to my bed and dragged the blankets from her bed down the hallway and next to my bed. She was next to me all night. Its like she understood that I needed her more than ever.
We took Tyson with us to the vets to make it a bit more "routine" for Mully and he kept the vet nurses occupied in the waiting room...he kept "inhaling" the treats they fed him in 2 seconds flat.
The vet gave me my privacy and left the room once her heart had stopped beating. I laid on the floor and cried and cried and couldn't let her go. Mum was with me for support and just laid with me crying, hugging me and stroking mully. I took all the time I needed. I walked out and Tyson started crying instantly as though he knew that she was gone. I took his lead and started walking out. He wouldn't come, he wanted his "mate". I finally got him in the car and laid in the back seat with him and cuddled the whole drive home.
Mully didn't fight it at all. She has always hated needles and I warned the vet when he took her out the back to put the tube in her leg, that she might resist and to hold her head away. He took 20 minutes to find a vein and said Mully was fine.
The biggest comfort for me is that I truly believe she understood and welcomed it. She was calm and cuddly. The kiss on the cheek was her goodbye. She didn't cry or get agitated at all like she normally does at the vet.
She is at peace with herself now.
Hope you are ok. Cleasanta said it perfectly. You know deep down that you have made the right decision for her. Just try to think of the good times
My thoughts are with you as I know how hard it is to say goodbye to a friend
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face
Oh JTDNTB, your last post made me cry so much for you, big hugs to you and your family.
Enjoy Tyson and Bailey today Judge, and don't be harsh on yourself. It's ok to be a bit relieved when it's all over. I felt the same with Holly, devastated but thankful it was over.
to all of you.

Dogs Aren't Our Whole Lives, But They Make Our Lives Whole
Sometimes they just know. You can read books, attend lectures, take classes and all that but I don't think we shall ever truly comprehend how insightful these creatures are.
